My sister-in-law is a flight attendant and generously offered me a “Buddy Pass”. $40 one way to Denver, Colorado to visit my bother Rick for his birthday – I jumped at the chance!
That’s the last time I jumped on this trip.
$40 equals “stand by”. After a 3 hour wait at the airport I stood by and watched as the plane took off without me (and 4 other standby passengers). Only one more flight out. My bags were still packed so I stood by for another 3 hours. Five thumbs went up as my fellow stand-byers and I were handed boarding passes.
This morning I booked a paid flight home.
*Rain, sleet and snow is coming in tonight with a 30 degree temperature drop!
